on capitol hill, earlier today, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was not sounding very confident. she was saying they're going to have it done by the end of the month but she said they have an aggressive check list to go through, an aggressive time line to meet. sort of putting out this feeling that programs it may not happen in time. the president said in dallas, this is happening in time. the other important thing, and i'll say this very quickly. the president did not go back to clean pup line if you like your plan, you can keep it. he did not try to revise that line as he did the other night. perhaps an indication that they know that clean-up job was not going too well. >> let me ask you this. the hits keep on coming for the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. it died down a little bit. it felt like it but now gaining heat again on capitol hill. getting a tough grilling. what exactly happened there? >> well, she was pressed by senators throughout this hearing about the various problems with the website, the veracity of the president's comments when
